Call Power Partnering

Five most promising research and innovation calls in the Research and Innovation Framework programme Horizon 2020 will be identified by the SENET consortium. The “top 5 topics” will be proactively disseminated by SENET to promising potential partners with proven research and innovation experience in the specific domains. SENET will thus accelerate the partnership and network building with the aim to integrate less experienced researchers and SMEs with more advanced teams.
